I have always been a big fan of Edgar Allen Poe, so the release of the movie The Raven has me very excited. I wish there was a line of people waiting outside the theater to see this movie like they would be for Harry Potter or The Hunger Games.
Here is a synopsis from IMDB:
“When a madman begins committing horrific murders inspired by Edgar Allan Poe’s works, a young Baltimore detective joins forces with Poe to stop him from making his stories a reality.”
The movie stars John Cusack as Poe, “the only one who can stop a serial killer is the man who inspired him.”
